You are likely well aware that new siding is easily one of the most important (and costly) home improvement projects you will ever do to your Denver home. This means it is something to both research thoroughly and to prepare for as you would any large event or purchase. No matter why you are getting new siding, be it an aesthetic upgrade or practical necessity, properly preparing your Denver home will give you a better chance of total success. Below are some great tips from Siding Colorado, a siding pro, on what you can do to get ready.
How To Prepare Your Home For New Siding
While the preparations for getting your Front Range home sided are not very extensive–getting them done benefits you and ensures the safety of those working on your home.
Prepare the Outside of Your Home For Siding Construction
Most, if not all of the work for residing is done outdoors. *If there is interior damage from failed or faulty siding this will need to get this repaired first. But, this means you need to focus mostly on getting the outside of your home clean and free of clutter. Start with removing outdoor furniture: lawn chairs, tables, ornaments, lights, and plant boxes. This will help your job go faster and protect your outdoor belongings as well. Also, you may need to trim the trees around your home.
Prepare the Inside of Your Home For Siding Construction
While no work is being done inside your home–there are still a few things to do to prepare for a siding job. Be sure to secure any wall hangings to protect them from vibrations that occur during installation. Siding vibrations have been known to knock pictures, frames and mirrors loose from time to time. Also, move shelves and furniture away from exterior walls. Lastly, be sure to cut power to your exterior lights to prevent workers from being hurt by live wires. Sometimes you may need to flip other breakers as well–so be sure to ask your contractor.
